Avant - A Fresh New Idea In Network Marketing

This article is about Avant, the new network marketing and personal development company founded by Brent Payne.

The CEO of Avant is Brent Payne, the former founder of Liberty League International. For those not familiar with that company, Liberty League was a highly successful network marketing and personal development company that Brent started with a co-founder.

After choosing to follow other interests, Brent Payne sold his interests in Liberty League to his partner, Shane Krider in 2009. (Krider subsequently discontinued all the existing products, remodeled the pay plan to a standard MLM pay plan and changed the company name to Polaris Media Group and then again later to Polaris Global Marketing.)

It comes as no surprise that, after more than a year out of the industry, Brent chose to create a new company with a new vision.


The name of the company is "AVANT" which means "forward". The vision of the company is to assist people in creating accelerated, positive growth in any area of their life by providing products and a community for education and support.


Avant offers three primary products: the Elevate home study course, the Transform 3-day conference and the Transform 4-day conference.

ELEVATE is a 72-day home study personal development course that includes a DVD/CD set, a study guide, journaling system, coaching calls and an online curriculum. The course carries a 72-day money back guarantee that's backed by the company (no chargebacks to the distributor who makes the sale). This is a vast improvement over other companies who historically offer the minimum guarantee required by law.

The TRANSFORM conference is a 3-day event held at various exotic locations around the world. The event personal development speakers and trainers who assist the attendee in discovering success principles that allow them to return home with a greater understanding of how to create positive change in their lives.

The TRANSCEND conference is a 4-day event. It's built on the foundational teachings found in Elevate and Transform and offers breakout sessions, experiential learning techniques, physical challenges (optional), etc.

(Note: all conference tickets are good for two adults and include hotel accommodations at the event location as well as several meals. This is a departure from other personal development companies who offer event tickets that are not inclusive of on-site expenses.)


Avant's compensation plan is another departure from what one normally sees in a top-tier business opportunity. While many companies require a distributor to "pass up" two or more sales in order to qualify to earn profits, Avant's pay plan does not require this.

Additionally, Avant's income opportunity is for the person who has a larger income goal in mind. With so many opportunities in network marketing that are "geared" toward earning a few hundred dollars a month for the first year, Avant offers a pay plan where the minimum commission earned is $1,000; so even with a small amount of activity, a new associate can earn an annualized $30,000 to $50,000 beginning in their first month.

In order to qualify for commissions, the new Avant simply completes one retail sale (which may be satisfied by their own product purchase.). In doing so, a new distributor can earn a full $1,000 profit on their very first sale without having to "pass up" any sales to their enroller or upline.

Also unlike similar pay plans, the Transform and Transcend product levels no longer require any "training sales". In older pay plans, one had to wait for four sales to be completed in their Advisor's team in order to be qualified to earn profits on conference tickets. With Avant, a distributor qualifies to earn the $5,000 and $10,000 profits (respectively) by completing one retail sale of each.


One new aspect that Avant has created is the ability to earn a percentage of every sale happening in one's 4-level organization. Commissions range from $50 each for each Elevate sale in their team; $250 for each Transform sale in their team; and $500 for each Transcend sale.

These types of residual commissions are normally reserved for MLM companies where distributors are on "autoship" to buy products every month. Avant has no autoship requirements, volume requirements or sales quotas.

This is very rare in "top-tier" marketing; a person can earn a large income right away....and still build a long-term, "walkaway" residual income for the future.
